Our Organisation

NHS England and NHS Improvement came together on 1 April 2019 as a new single organisation. The NHS Long Term Plan focuses on delivering integrated care to patients at the local level and we can best support the NHS to deliver this as a single integrated organisation.

Our new operating model represents a strong shift to regional delivery supported by expert corporate teams. Local health systems are supported by our integrated regional teams who play a major leadership role in the geographies they manage.

We are jointly committed to creating and maintaining a fair and supportive working environment and culture, where contributions are fully recognised and valued by all and staff feel empowered to carry out their duties to the best of their abilities. As employers we are committed to promoting and protecting the physical and mental health and well-being of all our staff. This underpins our values as set out in the NHS Constitution, supports us to be an Employer of Choice and ultimately enables our employees to support the effective care of our patients.

As a Complaints Administrator, the post holder will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering an effective service supporting managers and staff in managing complaints. 

In particular the post holder will provide and coordinate administrative and secretarial services; including for example, the preparation of agendas and minutes, taking appropriate follow-up action as required. Supporting the team with the management of complaints (including holding a small caseload of non-clinical complaints), gathering information and undertaking enquires as and when is necessary for the head of department, teams and the department. 

The Complaints Administrator provides a triage service on behalf of the Regional Complaints Team in terms of all new incoming work into the team. They provide a “front of house” service to complainants, service providers and all stakeholders. They oversee standardised elements of the complaints process including acknowledgement, consent, records management, liaison with the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman regarding requests for files. They will ensure that the CRM database is up to date and any contact and/or activity relating to a complaint is contemporaneously documented in the system (with attachments when relevant). They may be required to attend face to face meetings on and off site with patients, complainants and providers in order to facilitate local resolution. This could be at any stage of the complaints process.

Stacey  has assaulted  patients on Bronte Ward Wythenshawe hospital and continue to upset / harassing people racially and  sexually.

This is causing increased levels of violence on the ward by passive people trying to defend themselves.

This is having a detrimental effect on patients records which is unacceptable.

The partition to have Stacy removed form ward now contains 4 signatures and is championed by 
James Dorrian (BSC)(PHD)

I myself was bed ridden for 3 days after an assault and am awaiting tests for internal bleeding.
